The World Health Organization has found further evidence to support the claim that the Omicron variant is relatively less lethal and has milder symptoms. The agency presented the evidence at a news conference in Geneva, Switzerland, on Tuesday. Its incident manager Abdi Mahmud said that they have received information about the research done on Omicron in different countries of the world. They are also looking at the evidence of their own research and investigation. Omicron mainly attacks the upper part of the body, he said. The area that the other variants attack is at risk of developing severe pneumonia. He called the discovery good news.
At the same time, however, he warned that as Omicron is a highly contagious variant, it could become an influential variant of Covid in many parts of the world in the next few weeks. Countries where a large portion of the population has not yet been vaccinated are most at risk.
Note that this variant of Covid has spread around the world at lightning speed, though less lethal.
So far, Omicron has been identified in 130 countries around the world.
